HAPPY TAILS: CASH!!!Nicknames: Cashie, Cashew, and Bazooka (because of how fast he is off-leash)Kate and Mike adopted CASH from HBR just over a year ago! As he celebrates his first Gotcha Day, we asked the family for an update! They kindly provided the following: What are Cash’s favourite things to do: “Destroying cardboard boxes of all shapes and sizes, snuggling, chewing on sticks and firewood, dragging logs along on hikes, sleeping under blankets with us at night (with his head sticking out in the morning ), and playing fetch and keep-away. Although Cash is a big boy and loves to play, he is scared of things suddenly moving; even paper in the breeze. Late one night at a cabin we rented, a mouse suddenly jumped into the room from a little hole in the wall. Cash leapt off of the bed and ran into the screen-room porch. He didn’t come back until a good 5 minutes after the mouse left. Did Cash have any issues adapting to his new home? Nope. We kept him crated during the day with blankets and toys (and neighbour playtime visits and walks) while we were at work as recommended by his foster mom. Then once he was used to our routine, we let him have free roam of the house. He hardly chewed up anything compared to most puppies/young dogs. Do you have any advice for potential adopters? “Read the bios of the available dogs to get a sense for which would be the best fit your home and lifestyle of everyone that lives there. We knew Cash needs to run around everyday so we get him out for hikes as he *loves* running through the forest at full speed. Daily walks and hikes were already a part of our routine. “”We and everyone who meets Cash love him so much. He’s been a wonderful companion during the pandemic and cute reason to keep working from home. He is one of the most snuggly dogs we have ever met. We’re thankful he was surrendered to a rescue group and that Homeward Bound took such great care of him. This should be the way it is for all dogs in need of a new home.”Thank you so much for choosing adoption! We couldn’t be happier to read this update on CASH! He truly found his forever family!

Meet 4 year old OWEN!!! This Rockstar/Ladies Man needs a couch to crash on! I am a self described sensitive artsy type, and I fall in love easily! I like to tell the ladies that I am a very musical and soulful dude. I will sing you a song every time a police car, ambulance or Fire truck goes by. Oh, that’s not all ladies! I also love to cuddle and will even try to whisper (errrm, whimper?) sweet nothings in your ear! I am a really social guy. I get kinda worked up and anxious when I am left to my own devices.The good news? Unlike most rockstars I know, I do NOT have a history of throwing parties or destroying hotel rooms -but I will try to insist on going with you, and even make a mad dash for the door!It’s worth a try, right? My ideal pad would be a place with someone who comes home to see me mid-day or with someone who is around most of day. I am not a big fan of apartments because when I can hear the neighbours coming and going, and then I get, like, really depressed and anxious.Why is everyone else out having fun without me??I love to just sit around and jam with my people, but I do have some demons. It’s the rockstar life, man -we all have our demons! Mine is that I’m addicted to chasing cats, squirrels and little fluffy bunnies. Seriously, anything smaller than me better watch out. I’m not sure if there is a 12 step program for that or not…I am also really, really picky about other dogs. Most of them are not my kind of people. Dog parks are just not my kinda place, sorry. Good news! My energy level is right at about a medium, and school age kids or teens are my kind of people. I like the smaller kids, but they don’t like me. Sometimes it is hard not to step on them. I am clumsy like that. The bigger kids (over 7) are pretty good with a dog like me.In terms of exercise, if you are not that into intense workouts, a couple of 20 min walks and a game of fetch with someone each day, and I am ready to crash for the night. Unless you want me to be more active. ‘Cause I’m cool either way. My foster Mom has been working on my street smarts and my manners. I have learned to turn my head away when I burp so I don’t offend the ladies, and wait until she tells me it’s safe to cross the street.I am really hoping this helps me to be more adoptable.Most of all I am hoping there is a real nice place for me to lay my head somewhere out there. If you need a roommate, give me a shout! There is info about adopting on the HBR website at www.homewardboundrescue.ca ! Later!Owen
